""Jean-Christophe"" is the history of the development of a musician of genius. The present volume comprises the first four volumes of the original French, viz.: ""L'Aube"", ""Le Matin"", ""L'Adolescent"" and ""La Revolte"" which are designated in the translation as Part I-The Dawn; Part II-Morning; Part III-Youth; Part IV-Revolt. Parts I and II carry Jean-Christophe from the moment of his hirth to the day when, after his first encounter with Woman, at the age of fifteen, he falls back upon a Puritan creed. Parts III and IV describe the succeeding five years of his life, when, at the age of twenty, his sincerity, integrity, and unswerving honesty have made existence impossible for him in the little Rhine town of his birth. An act of open revolt against German militarism compels him to cross the frontier and tahe refuge in Paris, and the remainder of this vast booh is devoted to the adventures of Jean-Christophe in France.
